Willow Smith Wants To Be Bigger Than Lady GagaWednesday, December 08, 2010
"I would like to be a very well known artist.” She tells NME Mag. “I would like to be as big as Lady Gaga. I would like to be bigger. I'd like to be a big rock star."
The daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith might just get her wish. Her single “Whip My Hair” has garnered phenomenal responses from both young and old fans. Plus the track is on its way to the No. 1 spot on the UK singles chart, outselling artist like the Black Eye Peas.
While Willow, who is just ten years old, describes her fledgling career as "awesome" she added the responsibility of being a singer sometimes means she has to make sacrifices in her social life.
"The hardest part is wanting to hang out with your friends when you have to work,” she says. "My friends will come over and you're recording and you're like, 'Pleeease let me go with my friends. I don't wanna stay here!' but people are relying on you."
